• either link directly to the file (via "1/items" - but i am aware that this is not ideal),
• or to go to the file's archive media page http://www.archive.org/download/valentinspirikkevinsworlda3dvlogepisode1/kevins_world_a_3d_vlog_episode_1_h.264.mp4 and to try downloading it from there. at first i might get that "thanks for your patience" message, but it eventually works. i then can stop the download and it also works via an external link/site.
i have never had this problem with any of my other files. could there be something wrong with that particular file...? or is this really just temporary...? (which i fear might not be the case, since all my other files still work and the download via the file's archive page works as described...)
i am also asking since i need this file for an rss feed and somehow all feed aggregators seem to be confused by that error message and download a 4 kb dummy file that of course can't be played back.
any tips for how to possibly fix this would be welcome!
